Hey Martin,

Thanks for this fantastic study! Your investigation and analysis have
backed up my own personal presumptions in regards to the contributions made
by the amazing volunteers. It is extremely insightful and very beneficial
to see where we should be targeting our efforts to assist mappers both
newcomers and experts.

Kind regards,

Mhairi O'Hara
